with the president's gun violence task force, a group put together days after the sandy hook shooting. the national rifle association has made its position clear, no new gun laws, we should enforce the gun laws already on the books. vice-president joe biden has also spelled out the intentions from the white house to move swiftly to reduce gun violence. >> the president is calling to act. there is executive action that can be taken. we are compiling all of this with the help of the attorney general and all the cabinet members. >> with the gun debate heating up, gun and ammunition sales are going up. gun enthusiasts are stocking up on weapons and ammunition, feeling they could be outlawed. distributors have seen a big boost in sales. >> and in my lifetime as a businessman, there has been more demand for ammunition than there ever has been. >> call it a change of heart or change of mind, but walmart will now meet with the vice-president today as well. initially, the largest retailer in the country declined. john gonzalez, abc 7. >> a new study found gun violence is just one of many factors contributin
and howard fineman with the latest on all of that. >>> and later, the house passes a partial sandy relief bill, but not without republican opposition. liz winsted weighs in on the sandy 67. stay tuned. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." our country really is on the verge of one of the most important financial discussions that we have ever had. yet republicans are planning to hold americans hostage by using the debt court of appealing to cut the big three, go after the entitlements. the only move they have is to spread misinformation in a desperate attempt to gain support, because if you look at every poll, they don't have the support that the president has. meanwhile, president obama is going to need to show what leverage he has. the white house is going to need to position itself perfectly in order to prevent a financial collapse from happening. the american people and the president are on one side of the table, the hostage-taking republicans on the other side. how is it all going to work out? let's turn tonight to eugene robinson from the "washington post" and nbc news political analyst
of hurricane sandy. it might sound like a no-brainer, but the conservative club for growth promised to punish anyone who voted for it, and 67 republicans voted it down. that's ahead. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> vice president biden presided over a joint session of congress today to officially count the electoral votes for president. it's a formality required under the u.s. code, but it's worth noting this fact. according to the official tally from november's election, president obama won 51.1% of the popular vote to mitt romney's, get this, 47.2%. and that makes obama the first president since dwight eisenhower to win at least 51% of the vote in back-to-back elections, and he's the first democrat to do so since fdr. we'll be right back. you know that little 50-pound thingy at the doctor's office when they weigh you, and they have to move it over? my doctor does not have to do that anymore.

on a full, clean, sandy-aid bill now. now, next week, one thing i hope that everybody in america now clearly understands, new jersey, both republicans and democrats will never stand silent when our citizens are being shortchanged. >> and let's not forget what governor chris christie said last week. >> there is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims. the house majority, and their speaker, john boehner. >> and today, "the daily beast" published the interview, she is mad as hell, about the myriad ways the republican brand has been tarnisted, the sorry state, the ongoing alienation of latino voters, the epic failure of the fiscal cliff negotiations. and most recently, the house's arguing over the disaster relief aid. i'm angry, fumes mosbacher, i'm angry about the mistakes, i'm not writing any checks and i'm not asking anyone else to write any checks until i hear something that makes sense to me. since the election there have been a lot of gatherings and meetings among those who are active in raising money. the question is are we united in drying that up fr

that the president wants to move fast on the issue of gun control coming out of the sandy hook shooting. vice president biden's task force is likely to make recommendations before the inaugural and he told boston's mayor tom menino that it would be passed by the end of january. is that optimism on his part justified, and are you open to the kind of reforms the president has already talked about like a limit on high-capacity gun magazines and background checks to buyers at gun shows? >> well, first we need to concentrate on joe biden's group and what are they going to recommend? and after they do that, we'll decide what, if anything, is appropriate to do in this area, but the biggest problem we have at the moment is spending and debt. that's going to dominate the congress between now and the end of march. none of these issues, i think, will have the kind of priority that spending and debt are going to have over the next two or three months. >> so you're not going to address this until after you address these three deadlines we talked about at the top of the program? >> yeah, the single biggest
